Each video is characterized by Motor Mouthed characters drawn in extremely simple styles with little more than a torso and head with solid black eyes. Their bodies vibrate rapidly to indicate speech, and Floating Limbs appear when gestures are needed and disappear as soon as they've accomplished their purpose. Which is to say, you're not here for top-notch visuals, you're here for the Rapid-Fire Comedy.

Given that this series is based on summarizing existing works, expect Spoilers Off for those works. Also, no need to cover tropes that originate from those works.
Look out, it's Tropes Guy!
- Adaptational Badass: In "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure But Really Really REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY FAST", towards the end as Jotaro and Dio are having a meta-discussion on the purpose of the video, Jonathan suddenly pops up, moving and talking normally in the middle of the ongoing Time Stop. While he was by no means less of a Badass in the source material, because Jonathan's canon death occurred before Stands were introduced to the series, as well as long before Dio or Jotaro possessed the power to stop time themselves, he never had experience with fighting an enemy with such an ability, unlike Jotaro who learned slowly over the course of his battle with Dio how to move during a Time Stop. That said, it was Dio's head being attached to his body that allowed the Vampire to master his own Stand, The World and develop his ability to stop time. In the video, upon being surprised to see his great-great-grandfather moving in stopped time as he could but without any sort of training, Jotaro even postulates that DIO and Jonathan essentially having the same body is what is allowing Jonathan to move during the stopped time.
- Adaptational Early Appearance: While non-canon, Jodio appears in "Giorno Eats King Crimson" before even Stone Ocean got a video to bust Giorno out of jail (in exchange for millions of dollars).
- Adaptational Jerkass: A minor case in "Golden Wind". The memetic scene of Narrancia and Mista beating up a guy with Abbaccio shortly joining them had removed the context of said guy threatening Narrancia for accidently spilling wine on his expensive suit. As such, the three looked like they kicked the shit out of a random passer-by minding his own business for absolutely no reason.
- Adaptation Personality Change:
- Two cases in "Diamond is Unbreakable":
- Kira was a serious, stone-cold serial killer in the original "Diamond is Unbreakable" whereas Viva's version forgoes the first part in favor of an Obviously Evil Large Ham whose speech mostly consists of shouting and quoting "ECNALUBMA" and with murderous tendencies barely kept in check.
- Hayato started as an aloof and cold child who eventually becomes determined to protect his mother no matter what. Here, he's a Nervous Wreck who's always on the verge of an anxiety-induced heart attack.
- Three more cases in "Golden Wind":
- Giorno is a lot livelier, less serious and is very prone to Lampshade Hanging such as how his stand works, the current situation he's in or explaining King Crimson.
- Secco seems to act almost exactly like he is in the source material, but when he calls Cioccolata over the phone, his voice is calmer and more lucid.
- Doppio's entire Ambiguous Situation over his relationship with Diavolo is basically entirely eschewed after the first scene in favor of complete nonsense and being as humorously un-subtle as possible that he's Diavolo. By the time he reveals himself to Polnareff, the subtitles actively refer to him as Diavolo.
- Two cases in "Diamond is Unbreakable":
- Adaptational Superpower Change: Downplayed with Prosciutto's The Grateful Dead. It still causes accelerated aging, but it also instills a desire to play backgammon due to this iteration of Prosciutto thinking backgammon is underrated. It's even lampshaded by the stat screen.Narrator: Backgammon time baybeeeeee!
- Adapted Out:
- Tertiary JoJo characters that don't add anything to the plot such as Poco, Smokey Brown, and Anne don't appear in their respective videos. They later appear in "Child Protagonist Purgatory" in "Diamond Is Unbreakable", alongside Emporio from Part 6, who is seen leaving to be Jolyne's sidekick. Averted very minorly with Smokey getting only a single line in "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure But Really Really REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY FAST".
- Similarly, neither Sorbet nor Gelato appears in the "Golden Wind" episode as their death scene isn't adapted. During the meeting between La Squadra, a sign that says "MIA" stands in for both of them.
- Also in "Golden Wind", the process of Melone creating Baby Face's Junior happens entirely off-screen (which the narrator also lampshaded), due to the very non-consensual and icky nature of it. Giorno's fight against the Junior is also reduced to a Funny Background Event.
- Alternate Timeline: While "Giorno Eats King Crimson" featured Giorno going back in time to undo his eating of King Crimson, "Giorno Explains King Crimson" has a Giorno from a completely alternate timeline wearing blue show up to explain the manga's version of events and what the anime adaptation of Golden Wind added during scenes involving time skips.
- Alternative Calendar: "Pikmin" has Olimar announce log entries with stardates involving special typographical characters. For example, in the first scene, he says "stardate ampersand-carat-percent-dollar sign-dollar sign."
- Ambidextrous Sprite: The characters are simple enough that it usually doesn't matter but a couple of situations stand out where the trope is zig-zagged:
- "Battle Tendency": The Column Fellows have numbers tattooed on their chests that need to read the same when they turn either way but the mechanized half of Cyborg Stroheim's head keeps switching sides.
- "Stardust Crusaders": DIO's moles are consistently on one side of his face but things such as Jotaro's chain and Polnareff's shoulder strap switch sides.
- "Toy Story": The buttons on Buzz's chest stay on their respective sides no matter which way he faces but Woody's badge switches sides when he turns.
- "Golden Wind": Melone's hair and the holes in his outfit always face the camera regardless of which side he's facing.
- Ambiguous Syntax: "Five Nights at Freddy's - RED VERSION" has Mike state that Freddy only tries entering the office from the right unless the lights are off, then asks Chica "Same with you?" Chica thinks he's talking about changing strategies in the dark; Mike has to clarify that his question was referring to which door she tries entering from.
- Anachronism Stew:
- From "Stardust Crusaders", which canonically takes place in the late 1980s:Judgement: Have you watched Aladdin?
Polnareff: That ain't out yet.
Judgement: Uh, then this might take a hot minute to explain.
- And then in "Diamond Is Unbreakable", which takes place in 1999:
- From "Stardust Crusaders", which canonically takes place in the late 1980s:
- Anime Hair: Lampshaded by Narancia's shopping list, which includes hairspray at least three times.
- April Fools' Day: Every year, the videos uploaded on April 1st tend to be more nonsensical than the norm such as...
- 2019: The first Really Really Fast video going really really slow instead.
- 2020: Recapping Viva's library of work while framed as Jotaro going on a search for Josuke.
- 2021: Viva directly addresses her creations as the Narrator to talk about the creative process (And then announces that a Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan video will be released just a few days later).
- 2022: Recapping the entire JoJo series thus far while going so fast that none of the characters have time to get off the set before the next arc starts).
- 2023: Giorno eats King Crimson and has Phoenix Wright try to convince everyone that it was only an image of him.
- Art Shift:
- In "Stardust Crusaders" during the infamous "Oh? You're approaching me?" scene.
- In "Diamond is Unbreakable" when Rohan points out the "Doesn't count" he wrote on Koichi to save him from the Bad Alleyway, his hands are drawn with a lot more detail.
- In "Golden Wind", every time Pesci goes into his "Serious Mode", his face is drawn in a lot more detail.
- Author Appeal: Viva Reverie loves putting references to They Might Be Giants' songs in her videos.
- Author Avatar: Viva has one in the form of The Narrator who is represented by a black-and-white Title Card and referred to as "the voice in the sky" by the cast. She is also a blue 3D-rigged spider-bat for the non-canon episodes and her YouTube channel overall.
- Auto-Tune: Both Polpo and his Stand, Black Sabbath, speak with a highly distorted, autotuned speech, alluding to his weird echoed voice in the source material.
- Big "NO!":
- In "Squid Game", Deok-su bellows one when Mi-nyeo suplexes him off the glass bridge.
- "Diamond is Unbreakable" has Josuke scream out one when Okuyasu gets hit by Killer Queen and Stray Cat's exploding bubbles. Jotaro wonders what was that noise and then brushes it off like in the source material.
- "Golden Wind But Really Really Really Fast" has a hilariously literal version: the description for Gold Experience Requiem is a large "NO" superimposed over the Stand profile card, referencing its esoteric ability to reverse the actions of an enemy back to "zero"; essentially saying "no" to the possibility. It could alternatively be seen as the narrator not wanting to try and explain what the Stand does since she's done with trying to explain any abilities in this part after how often Gold Experience and King Crimson bend their own rules and how the latter especially rendered her earlier explanation meaningless.
- Big "WHAT?!": Light, after his I Know You Know I Know confrontation with Near ends with the latter suddenly producing multiplying 'Death Notes'. For no apparent reason, this causes him and Mikami to blow up.
- Blatant Lies: The narrator describes Squalo's Clash as "Is a shark" (Given it's a shark) but shouts Tiziano's Talking Head as "IS A SHARK" right after when it's clearly not (Given its ability).
- Book Ends: As mentioned by Viva herself in the behind-the-scenes video on "Battle Tendency", that video begins and ends with the phrase "And thus ends this villainous legacy forever!"
- Brand X: The Pepsi brand that appears on the billboard in "Diamond is Unbreakable" is replaced with just the word "Logo."
- Breaking the Fourth Wall:
- Literally in "Where Is Josuke?". Jotaro goes back in time through Viva Reverie's videos by moving a film reel upwards, all to locate the eponymous character.
- In "Diamond is Unbreakable", Jotaro says "Camera follow me" as the screen pans over when walking to Josuke.
- In "Golden Wind", when the narrator sums up the power of White Album as "-1° Kelvin", the tiny icon of Ghiaccio on the stats screen yells, "THAT'S NOT HOW THAT WORKS!!"
- In the same video, the narrator temporarily becomes Okuyasu near the end, implying that Chariot Requiem swapped her soul with Okuyasu's.
- In "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure But Really Really REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY FAST", Jonathan not having an Instant Costume Change from his childhood to adult outfit is pointed out by Incidental Character Speedwagon, so he goes off-set to change...which ends up derailing the entire recap.
- In "Giorno Eats King Crimson," Giorno plots to make the video non-canon by going back in time to before he ate King Crimson to give his past self a forewarning on lunch.
- Break the Cutie: Played for Laughs with Hayato, who frequently makes darkly hilarious observations about how traumatizing everything is for him.Hayato: Thank goodness for the adrenaline, it’s helping me ignore the settling PTSD!
- Brick Joke:
- In Phantom Blood, a textbox appears on the screen saying dio's name is "case sensitive." In Stardust Crusaders, the Stand Stats screen for The World lists the Stand Master as: DIO (case sensitive).
- In Stardust Crusaders, the description for J. Geil's Hanged Man is "technically not a man in the mirror". In "Golden Wind", the description for Illuso's Man in the Mirror is "technically not a haNGED MAN (sic)".
- In "Golden Wind", during Koichi's phone call to Jotaro, there's a crash in the background followed by someone yelling about killing, and Jotaro asks if he hears the sound of stand users. Towards the end of the video, it's shown that this was Mista dealing with Scolippi and declaring that he's killed fate.
- Also in "Golden Wind", Mista's first appearance has him slamming at the restaurant table and yelling, "A CIRCLE!" The ending of the episode reveals that it was because Mista had been trying and failing to find words to describe Rolling Stones earlier.
- Call a Smeerp a "Rabbit": Parodied in "Pikmin" where after Olimar names the Onion and Pikmin according to the lore from the game, he decides to call a "box-shaped" cardboard box a "box," the "bulblorb-shaped" creatures "Bulborbs," and the "shmurrowing shmagret-shaped" creatures "Burrowing Snagrets."
- Call-Back: The "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" videos have a number of these that aren't quite prolific enough to count as running gags: note
- JoJo's mentor responds to an awkward question with "Your breathing is wrong!" and throws something at him.
- Then the Stand screen description of Justice is "See where incorrect breathing GETS YOU!"
- "And then [Enemy] came out of the horse."
- "I can't believe [Other Character] sacrificed himself and gave me all his power; what a dramatic twist of fate!" While the headgear from the deceased floats over to its new wearer.
- Responding to "Look out, it's (noun) guy!" with "I have defeated (noun) guy." In "Battle Tendency" the noun changes despite referring to the same opponent, which confuses Joseph.
- "Fire in the hole!" (Throws grenade) "Oh my god."
- The same grunting sound Santana makes when he squeezes himself out of his containment chamber (and also into Stroheim) in "Battle Tendency" is used for the sound effects of the air bubbles Stray Cat makes in "Diamond is Unbreakable".
- Both Column Fellow #2 and Joseph (vs. Column Fellow #3) get attacked, then comment on the attack and finish with "also: AAAAUUUUGGGGHHHH—!"
- Two allies argue with "We should attack (the enemy) now!" "We should not!"
- Two of Star Platinum's less-orthodox moves elicit reactions of, "Wow, I can't believe you (verb)ed at them so hard they exploded/imploded!" Jotaro responds, "Natural talent," the second time in a questioning tone.
- "I have returned!" "No, you haven't!" "Correct!" Poor Hol Horse.
- When Jotaro is blasted against a wall in "Diamond is Unbreakable", he comments "So that's how it feels" since he had beaten down several people the exact same way back in "Stardust Crusaders". And the scene itself resembles Kakyoin's defeat at Jotaro, down to the same screen and dark blue wall.
- The descriptions for Star Platinum and The World both begin with "punchy boy", referring to how the two Stands are similar. In the next part, Josuke's Crazy Diamond, which looks awfully similar to The World, is described as a "punchy anti-entropy boy." Giorno's Gold Experience is described as "punchy Vita boy", presumably since Giorno is the protagonist of his part.
- Similarly, the descriptions for Tower of Gray and Superfly read the same, "Not actually a fly," alluding to how the two Stands' names get compared a lot among the fandom.
- In "Battle Tendency" and "Diamond is Unbreakable", Joseph ends up running with another person towards a ledge to stop a precious object from falling. The first instance had him try to beat Column Fellow #3 in getting the special rock in time on a snowy ledge. And the other has him and Josuke trying to save Achtung Baby from falling into a river, despite the former's old age getting to him at times.
- "(Location name) or whatever" appears twice, first with "Notre Dame or whatever" in Part 2 and then "The Taj Mahal or whatever" in Part 3.
- Hanged Man's Stand description in Part 3 is "Technically not a man in the mirror." Man in the Mirror's Stand description from Part 5 is "Technically not a hanged MAN."
- "Not that this will make sense in the greater canon, but..." This appears twice in "Stardust Crusaders", referring to how Holly apparently needs to be "cured" of her Stand, and how Stands can apparently shrink themselves at will as seen during the Steely Dan fight.
- After Giorno kills Carne, some of Notorious B.I.G's goop got onto his hand and he wonders why his hand feels so heavy, similar to how Joseph wonders why his back feels so heavy after Column Fellow #2's disembodied brain latches onto his back.
- Diavolo and Polnareff's confrontation on the stairs of the Colosseum has the exact same setup used for Polnareff and DIO's confrontation in Part 3.
- On a related note: In "Battle Tendency", the narrator introduces the Colosseum by saying, "Meanwhile, in the Colosseum I guess." In "Golden Wind", she instead says, "Meanwhile, in the Colosseum but actually."
- Narrator!Okuyasu referring to Chariot Requiem as "Slowly Walking Man" is a bit reminiscent of the "Look out, it's (x) Guy!" gag from the earlier installments.
- In "Battle Tendency", Joseph bluntly states to Suzy Q that he'll have sex with her later. In the Mutsu-kabe Hill segment of "Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe", Naoko creepily says to Gunpei's shriveled-up corpse that she'll have sex with him later.
- JoJo's mentor responds to an awkward question with "Your breathing is wrong!" and throws something at him.
- Call-Forward: The "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" videos also have quotes or moments alluding to future parts:
- When Jonathan attempts to set DIO on fire while the latter has recently become a vampire, DIO responds with his goal to "take over the world first". But Jonathan interrupts him when he says "The World", because he's not supposed to say that yet.
- As a kid, Joseph Joestar told some kidnappers that he wants to be Spider-Man when he grew up. This references him using his vine-like Stand to swing from buildings during the final battle against DIO. When that scene arrives in "Stardust Crusaders", Joseph lampshades it by saying that one should "always wish upon a star!"
- At one point, DIO proclaims that he’s going to have sex with at least four people, setting up his various kids from Parts 5 and 6.
- "Battle Tendency" at one point changes scenes with a "Meanwhile, in Venice" title card, followed by a few frames showing Part 5's Bruno Bucciarati and Trish Una. This gets paid off in the actual "Golden Wind" episode, which quickly shows a scene of Joseph, Caesar, and Lisa Lisa from "Battle Tendency".
- When High Priestess catches the Stardust Crusaders in her mouth, she explains that her teeth cannot be destroyed, because "it is hard as diamonds, and diamond is unbreakab—" just as Star Platinum smashes them out.
- In that same video, the final scene has Joseph announcing his plans to go home and see his wife, who he has a "healthy monogamous relationship with", only to awkwardly trail off.
- "Diamond is Unbreakable" ends with nearly everyone at Morioh wishing a good flight to Actual Ghost Reimi Sugimoto as she ascends to a higher plane of existence. While this happens, Jotaro says the same thing to Koichi instead, and throws him into the sky with prepared luggage. And then, on the boat home with Joseph, Jotaro wants to go home to his wife, who he has a "healthy monogamous relationship with" ("show-off"). He is about to reveal other plans while Koichi is still flying and screaming. This alludes to Vento Aureo's beginning, where Jotaro sends Koichi to Italy in order to investigate Giorno Giovanna, the new protagonist.
- Yuya's tie has the face of Speed King from Part 8.
- When Hayato is getting out of "Child Protagonist Purgatory", Emporio can be seen behind Poco, Smokey, and Anne.
- A rare instance of a Call Forward where the referenced scene happens in the same episode: when Doppio uses his Epitaph ability to see the future, he sees his own Stand description that is shown in the video roughly 10 seconds afterward.
- Lampshaded in the "But Really Really REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY FAST" video. Jotaro takes advantage of his time stop to crack a few dad jokes, calling forwards to Stone Ocean (which stars his daughter).
- In "Giorno Explains King Crimson", the manga version of Giorno explains that the reason he's in the main timeline was because of a "funny pink man", referring to the main villain of Part 7.
- Captain Obvious: Jotaro seems to step into this territory on Thursday, July 15th while he's keeping Joseph company.Jotaro: Gosh, the starfish... they have legs.note
- Casual Danger Dialogue: Most of what goes on in Five Nights at Freddy's But Really Really Fast - RED Version, by proxy of this incarnation of Mike being much more versed in how the game works, both inside and outside. It gets to the point where Freddy and Mike are actively taunting one another.
- Yoshikage Kira says "Another day, another concerningly narrow escape!" anytime he believes he got the Jojo group off his trail.
- Black Sabbath mostly says, "WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE THAT GROOVY THING?" during his screen time in "Golden Wind," with his other dialogue being screaming. Also counts as a Pre-Mortem One-Liner as he uses the phrase to announce his intent to stab people with the Stand Arrow.
- Cluster Bleep-Bomb: Actual Ghost Reimi Sugimoto gives Kira a long one when she finally meets him in the Bad Alleyway.
- Composite Character: The Narrator doubles as the radio host for "Diamond is Unbreakable" though it's limited to saying the phrase "Morioh-Cho Radio" at random intervals even when it's intersecting with completely unrelated narration.
- Conditioned to Accept Horror: "Five Nights at Freddy's But Really Really Fast - RED VERSION" is about Mike being totally desensitized to everything happening around him, knowing exactly when to do at every moment, and having memorized the entire lore.
- Confusing Multiple Negatives:
- In "Five Nights at Freddy's But Really Really Fast - BLUE VERSION", Phone Guy advises Mike about the "deadly not deadly deadly not fuzzy not animals" in the pizzeria.
- In "Golden Wind", Narancia is under attack by a Stand that latches onto his tongue and makes everything he says the opposite of what he means to say. Then we get this exchange:Narancia: I DON'T NOT KNOW WHERE THE ENEMY IS!
Squalo: Wait, does that mean he knows where we are?
Tiziano: No, my ability makes it a triple negative, and he-
[Tiziano realizes Narancia cut off his tongue, removing the Stand from himself]
Tiziano: Oh nope it's- wait, does that make it a quadruple negative—?
[Both he and Squalo get shot down by Aerosmith]
- Corpsing: Right before Team Buccialati steal a plane to Sardinia to learn Diavolo's identity, the narrator tries to read the card but winds up breaking down into hysteric laughter when they get on a plane in an episode of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure knowing full well the notorious bad luck other Jojo groups have had with transportation.The Narrator: I have an idea let's go fly a pLANE in an ePISODE OF JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE
- Curse Cut Short:
- Light in "Death Note" when he first meets Ryuk, interrupted by a Cut to Another Scene with a news report.
- Joseph in "Battle Tendency" arrives at his own funeral very much alive and his friends and family respond in this way. Joseph then tells them why he's definitely not dead.
- Jotaro cuts his own curse short with his time stop in "Diamond is Unbreakable".
- Defeat Equals Explosion: A Running Gag in the series where almost every time a character dies in any given episode, they explode. This gets lampshaded in "Golden Wind" where Bucciarati states in-universe about investigating the death of Leaky Eye Luca on account of him exploding.
- Happens again in the same part summary (again by Bruno) when Passione set out to claim Polpo's fortune, with Bruno's reasoning being that he "seems to have exploded when [they] weren't looking".
- Defeat Equals Friendship:
- "Stardust Crusaders" has this with Kakyoin and Polnareff, though they were only enemies in the first place due to forehead squids.Jotaro: I anticipate we'll either have a team of thirty by the end of this trek or we'll just so happen to coincidentally stop seeing forehead squids from this point forward.
- All over the place in "Diamond is Unbreakable", much to Jotaro's exasperation when a massive group of former enemies shows up all claiming to be main characters.
- "Stardust Crusaders" has this with Kakyoin and Polnareff, though they were only enemies in the first place due to forehead squids.
- Demoted to Extra:
- "Stardust Crusaders" does this with a number of enemies:
- The battle with Forever and Strength is completely skipped over.
- Arabia Fats doesn't even appear anywhere other than in his info card. This time instead of a rock smashing through his mirrored hideout, it's Steely Dan who Jotaro launched in the previous scene.
- The video glosses over Oingo and Boingo, including Hol Horse's team-up with Boingo. They simply fall over and explode without the heroes even noticing them.
- Rohan doesn't even bother to engage Ken Oyanagi, instead snickering and leaving without a fight.
- Koichi lampshades how his role of being one of the protagonists in "Diamond Is Unbreakable" is now significantly reduced in "Golden Wind" to be the bridge between the parts:Koichi: Wait sir, are you an antagonist? ...Am I an antagonist?.. Oh no, I'm a side character aren't I?
- One could take the issue of Purple Haze in "Golden Wind" as this, being that it's canonically too dangerous for Fugo to use it.The Narrator: Pannacotta Fugo's "Purple Haze" - Oops! Never seen again
- "Stardust Crusaders" does this with a number of enemies:
- Department of Redundancy Department: The flashback to the man who inspired Josuke’s hairstyle:Not Josuke: Hello I’m not Josuke! I will I’m not Josuke save you I’m not Josuke!
Narrator: He’s not Josuke.
- Double Meaning:
- The description for Fugo's Purple Haze is "Oops! Never seen again.", referring to the stand's first and last appearance onscreen due to how dangerous it is to control as well as Fugo himself not being seen again once Bucciarati's gang decides to defect from The Boss.
- Scolippi's Rolling Stones is described as "Your Density" which ties to its ability of undeniable fate (Destiny) and heaviness (Dense).
- After Giorno upgraded his Stand to Gold Experience Requiem, the narrator bluntly states "NO.". Both highlight her refusal to even elaborate on its convoluted abilities but still summarise how it can No-Sell anything.
- Do You Want to Haggle?: In "Giorno Eats King Crimson", Jodio tries to squeeze some money out of Giorno to break him out of prison and winds up with Giorno's credit card and PIN number.
- Early-Bird Cameo: In "Diamond is Unbreakable", during the moment Hayato Kawajiri heads out of the "Child Protagonist Purgatory", another child wearing a baseball uniform can be seen behind the three with his face obscured. That kid is Emporio Alniño from Stone Ocean.
- Early-Installment Weirdness:
- Easter Egg:
- The captions for the videos add extra jokes, such as describing sound effects in humorous ways, and even occasionally some extra trivia about the making of the videos (such as the caption for Mike drinking in "Five Nights at Freddy's (Red Version)" being "*a drinking sound effect, edited slightly because the original sounded kinda disgusting*").
- One scene in "Golden Wind" shows the gang's computer, with a program called "2zRgpBxWRo4.avi" on it. The filename is a YouTube video ID, and plugging it into a YouTube link (https://youtu.be/2zRgpBxWRo4) takes you to an alternate version of the episode, where Giorno and Fugo are drawn with their manga colors, and the Title Drop was changed from "Golden Wind" to "Vento Aureo". On this alternate version, the program filename shown on the same computer scene is changed, and it leads to another easter egg.
- Even the Subtitler Is Stumped: In "Battle Tendency", during the part where everyone is talking at once, the captions are just a long string of random letters, with "glhf actually transcribing this lol" somewhere in the middle.
- Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!: In "Golden Wind", after Notorious B.I.G. is thrown out of the plane, Trish expresses her relief, but then realizes it may not have had the effect the group was hoping for.Trish: The current situation is terribly unfortunate, but thankfully the enemy that follows the fastest thing in its vicinity was thrown off the...plane—waaait-(B.I.G. crashes through the window behind her)
- Expospeak Gag: The start of the April Fools 2019 video has Light describes the Death Note (or at least the "Note" part) in this way.Light: I’ve collected the apparatus, that which can be used for storage of information. Or, alternatively, the collection of information if a secondary utensil is applied in an appropriate manner.
- Floating Limbs: Character models don't have any visible arms or legs. If they need to gesture, a floating hand will appear from out of frame. If they need to be holding something, the object will hover near them.
- For Want Of A Nail: The reason Giorno eats King Crimson in "Giorno Eats King Crimson"? He skipped lunch that day.
- Four Is Death: Mista is struck by lightning and shouts "CRIKEY!" at exactly 4:44 into "Golden Wind but Really Really Fast", right after Trish says "Take off your clothes!"
- Freeze-Frame Bonus: A common type of gag that encourages replays.
- When "Battle Tendency" announces the next scene is in Venice, there's a split-second cutaway to Bucciarati and Trish from Golden Wind, which also has a plot arc in Venice.
- The end of "Battle Tendency" has Joseph Joestar's gravestone read as follows:Joseph Joestar
- "Battle Tendency" ends with a split-second of Old Joseph talking to Jotaro as a preview for "Stardust Crusaders".
- During the Steely Dan section in "Stardust Crusaders", Dan demands a back rub from Jotaro. This occurs while Dan's Stand, Lovers, is inside Joseph, meaning that Joseph feels anything that Dan experiences. The back rub causes Joseph's eyes to become Blank White Eyes, since he suddenly feels more comfortable. This can be seen in the Split Screen containing Polnareff, Kakyoin and Joseph for a second or two.
- After Gambler D'Arby is knocked out, his cards fly off the table, and if you look close enough, on one of those cards you can see Jack the Ripper's face from "Phantom Blood" on the Jack of Clubs card.
- "Where Is Josuke?" previews "Diamond is Unbreakable" by having Jotaro find Josuke in 1999... after hopping through other Viva Reverie videos.
- Just after the first time rewind in "Diamond is Unbreakable", Hayato walks out of the "Child Protagonist Purgatory", straight past Poco, Smokey and Anne, with Emporio just behind.
- The ambulance that runs over Kira has "ecnalubma" written on it rather than "ambulance".
- In "Stardust Crusaders", when Star Platinum is being explained, after "Punchy boy" the words "and then some" appear in very small text for a very brief moment.
- In "Giorno Explains King Crimson", when Rohan says "a visual representation of the vision", the word "visheral" flashes up on the screen in the corner, Viva subtly mocking Rohan's/her own slurred pronunciation of "visual".
- Gambit Roulette: Kira even admits that he's playing most of his plans by ear and is really lucky everything went as well as it did.Kira: Another day, another concerningly narrow escape.
- Games of the Elderly: Among the effects of The Grateful Dead (a Stand that rapidly ages everyone around it) is making anyone affected by it want to play backgammon.
- Global Ignorance: Parodied with Bucciarati, who, despite being Italian, seems to mistake every major Italian landmark for Big Ben (an English landmark).
- Graceful Loser: After Josuke fuses Angelo with a rock, he admits that he deserved that and offers some exposition for Josuke and Jotaro. He doesn't get very far before Josuke twists his words into a hair insult and messes him up further until he can't talk, but points for trying.
- Gratuitous Italian: The janitor from "Golden Wind" has only two lines before his death:Janitor: Mamma mia pizza spaghetti.
Black Sabbath: WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE THAT GROOVY THING?! [Stabs him]
Janitor: RAVIOLI! [Explodes]
- Gratuitous Japanese:
- Light in "Death Note" yells "Masaka!" when L announces the existence of a second killer.
- DIO in "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" always announces his Time Stop with "ZA WARUDO!" per the meme. And then announces his steamroller attack with "ROADO ROLLAH DA!"
- In "Battle Tendency" Stroheim yells "Sekai-ichi!" ("Number one in the world!") when he shoots his cyborg eye laser at Column Fellow #3.
- In "Stardust Crusaders" when Jotaro and Joseph are arguing about taking a plane, Jotaro yells at him "Jiji!" (A casual term for "grandpa" which Jotaro often uses for Joseph in the source material).
- Have I Mentioned I Am Gay?: The only indication that Squalo and Tiziano are a couple in "Golden Wind" was the former's offhanded remark of "this part of the script was written during Pride Month" before they both got shot down almost immediately by Narrancia's Aerosmith.
- Hey, You!: After impersonating a random salaryman, Kira addresses Shinobu and Hayato as "wiiiiife" and "child" respectively as he didn't bother to find out the names of his new family until they told him themselves.
- The Hilarity of Hats: The tall hats worn by Loggins and Messina in "Battle Tendency" and Terence T. D'Arby in "Stardust Crusaders" are all exaggerated so they always extend past the edge of the screen. The first two are even referred to as "tall hat guys."
- Hollywood Heart Attack: Under the effects of the "Death Note", every single one of the victims' eyes suddenly widens, go "HUEHGH!" and drop dead in an exaggerated manner from a heart attack.
- Horrible Judge of Character: Polpo, despite apparently being aware of Giorno's plans to destroy the mafia from the inside out, still lets him join Passione and is sure he "only has the best of intentions".
- Idiot Ball: Phoenix Wright manages to almost prove Giorno not guilty on the terms that it's not illegal to eat a physical manifestation of the fighting spirit or an image of a physical manifestation of the fighting spirit, but Giorno complains that the court case has taken some time away from his job. When Edgeworth asks what his job is, Giorno straightforwardly answers that he's a mafia boss and is immediately sentenced to death.
- I Have a Family: Parodied. Angelo tries to use this trope to prevent a beatdown from Josuke, but his intentions slip through this tactic."Please, I can explain, I've got a wife and kids to murder."
- Implausible Deniability: "Five Nights at Freddy's - BLUE VERSION" has Phone Guy reassuring Mike that the job is definitely safe and that the animatronics may or may not be possessed and out for blood.
- Inconsistent Dub: Throughout "Stardust Crusaders," Jotaro's Catchphrase keeps changing to indicate different ways it's been translated: "Good grief," "How annoying," "What a bother," and so on. Until the very end where he says the original phrase, "Yare yare da ze." "Diamond is Unbreakable" resumes changing it during both instances it's been used, as "Today has been a long day," and, "The things I put up with," respectively.
- Insane Troll Logic: Josuke has a tendency to twist others' words into insults about his hair.Jotaro: To assert dominance I shall now detail miscellaneous strands of your history to your face. *Ahem*
Josuke's mind: Strands = Hair, History = Boring, Hair Boring = HAIR INSULT
- Subverted with Rohan, as Josuke starts to twist "biographies" into an insult, only for Rohan to directly insult his hair instead.
- Insistent Terminology: "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" repeatedly uses different terms for established concepts:
- The Stone Masks are called "stabby blood masks."
- Speedwagon is always called "Incidental Character Speedwagon." Even when "Stardust Crusaders" and "Diamond is Unbreakable" mention the organization named after him.
- Ripple/Hamon is called "Magic Sunlight Punches."
- In "Battle Tendency" any explicit mention of Nazis is censored with "German soldier" spoken in monotone.
- The Hell Climb Pillar is the "Oil Pit of Shame".
- The main opponents in "Battle Tendency" aren't Pillar Men, but Column Fellows. This even extends to addressing them as Column Fellow No.1/2/3, even after the last one tells Joseph, "My name is Kars, you cock!"
- In "Battle Tendency" the Red Stone of Aja is just called "the special rock."
- In "Stardust Crusaders" DIO's flesh buds are referred to as "forehead squids."
- Highway Star is "Weird Feet Stand".
- In "Diamond Is Unbreakable", Reimi and Arnold are constantly referred to as "actual ghosts" and the vengeful spirits of the alleyway as "grabby hands".
- In "Golden Wind" during the soul swap, Diavolo and Buccharati refer to the golden orbs representing their souls as "the floating sun behind my head".
- A character-specific example would be Giorno referring to Coco Jumbo (then later Polnereff) as a tortoise and not a turtle that everyone else has. Rohan later proves Giorno's notion wrong in "Giorno Explains King Crimson" after pointing out its characteristics are more turtle-like than tortoise.
- Jumped at the Call: Rohan is quite eager to begin his role as a main character once he meets Actual Ghost Reimi Sugimoto and Actual Ghost Arnold.Rohan: Come, Koichi! Adventure awaits!Koichi: You sure did take to the protagonist role rather quick, sir!
- Instant Bandages: In "Golden Wind", Squalo gets shot by Narrancia's Aerosmith before the scene changes but when it cuts back to him, he has three noticeable x-shaped plasters over his bullet wounds. Later in the video, Diavolo punches the "floating sun behind his head" which suddenly gets a plaster from being partially damaged.
- Leaning on the Fourth Wall:
- In "Diamond is Unbreakable," Masazo Kinoto scoots over the floor on his back for his scene, to avoid exposing his back (and Cheap Trick) to either Rohan or the audience.
- In "Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan", when Mikitaka shows up at Rohan's table, Rohan gets in his face demanding to know who he is while also pointing off-screen and saying "DON'T YOU DARE CUT AWAY!"
- Mista has a superstitious fear of the number four and at exactly 4:44 in the "Golden Wind" episode, Mista is struck by lightning out of nowhere.
- Major Injury Underreaction:
Jun-ho: Oh. Well, it's the journey, not the destination.
- In "SQUID GAME", how Jun-ho reacts to getting shot by the Front Man before falling to his death:
- Several in "Golden Wind". Melone's reaction to his fatal snake bite is a simple "Oh, that's not fair", while Bruno reacts to King Crimson punching a hole in him by saying "Alright adrenaline, let's see how long you can keep me going!"
- Most Definitely Not a Villain: Enya's introduction.Enya: Hello, welcome to the worst town ever, I'm not evil, don't mind the zombies.Polnareff: What a nice lady!
- Money for Nothing: Giorno in "Giorno Eats King Crimson" could easily escape jail with Gold Experience Requiem, but he decides to give Jodio the $15,000,000 he asks for anyway and even gives him his credit card and PIN number. When Jodio asks why he has such a nonchalant attitude about money, Giorno reveals that he plans on making the timeline non-canon by going back in time to stop himself from eating King Crimson and that it really doesn't matter what happens to his money in this timeline.
- Motor Mouth: Everyone. Especially the main characters since they talk the most.
- Good luck picking out more than a couple of phrases in the "Battle Tendency" scene where the "special rock" is about to slip over a precipice, as Joseph, Column Fellow #3, and Caesar all announce their plans over each other.
- The climax of "Battle Tendency" has Joseph achieve the impressive feat of describing what's about to happen to Column Fellow #3 in one breath.
- Special mention goes to Captain Olimar in "Pikmin" as the only speaking role in the video (and pretty much never shuts up even for a second) even though he has no voice-overs in the games!
- Inverted in the April Fools 2019 video where every character speaks slowly with an occasional pause between words. Except for Ryuk who says his single line even faster than usual.
- Mike in Night 7 of "Five Nights at Freddy's - RED VERSION":Mike: Check the cameras, Bonnie's gone, Foxy's chill, Where's Bonnie? Bonnie's at the door. Foxy's peeking, Freddy's gone, Chica's in the kitchen, Hello, Freddy! Can't check on Foxy until the door's closed, Can't spend time closing the door unless Chica's here, Hello, Chica! Foxy's gone, running in the hall, close the door, Chica's gone, Foxy's done, Bonnie's here, Bonnie's gone, Bonnie's here, Bonnie's gone, having a good time, Freddy?
Mike: Of course not. Chica's here, Foxy's gone, or out of Pirate's Cove, therefore here!
Freddy: I'll love when you make a mistake.
Mike: If I make a mistake. Hi, Bonnie!
- Yoma in "Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan" talks a lot about getting more muscles, either in this fashion or in Pokémon Speak.
- Polpo in "Golden Wind" packs a lot of dialogue in only a single sentence twice, specifically noting that Giorno could use his position in the mafia to kill its boss and become a #hashtagGangstar.
- Multilayer Façade: Jun-ho's disguise in "Squid Game". By the end of it, he's wearing a guard's outfit with a circle mask, with a square mask on top of it, with a waiter's mask on top of that, all tied together by his headband.
- My Nayme Is: Dio's descriptions in "Phantom Blood" and "Stardust Crusaders" note that his name is case-sensitive. In the former video it's consistently stylized as "dio" and in the latter video as "DIO" as in other media, the latter typically refers to his "Stardust Crusaders" appearance specifically.
- Mythology Gag: Angelo's echoey voice, demeanor, and his Stand's description in "Diamond Is Unbreakable" are all directly lifted from Viva's My Little Pony-related animated short released four years prior, "The Mythical Water Horse".
- Never the Selves Shall Meet: A unique one. In "Giorno Explains King Crimson", Giorno's manga counterpart joins the audience halfway through, but nothing reality breaking happens until Manga Giorno tries to confront Mainline Giorno, causing them both to disappear (although they do undo it using Gold Experience Requiem). "Blugiorno" mentioning a "funny pink man" all but confirms this is the handiwork of the Big Bad of Steel Ball Run.
- Nightmare Fetishist: Shinobu's response to Kira declaring his desire to kill her is "What a turn-on!"
- No Indoor Voice: dio, Yukako, and Ghiaccio do not speak quietly but are instead the opposite with their dialogue being in all Caps Lock when the subtitles are turned on.
- "No. Just… No" Reaction: When Giorno turns his Gold Experience into Gold Experience Requiem, the stat screen just has the narrator say "NO", which both sums up Requiem's ability to No-Sell everything as well as her deciding against breaking her brain to explain how it works, especially after King Crimson invalidated its own explanation that she gave it earlier.
- Not Actually the Ultimate Question: In "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure But Really Really REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY FAST", DIO confronts Jotaro and asks what the point of the super-fast recap is. Jotaro instead assumes that DIO asked about what the point of life is.DIO: JOTARO.
Jotaro: Yeah yeah, alright, what do you want? You're supposed to be long dead.
DIO: WHAT WAS THE POINT OF THIS
Jotaro: ...What, like, in general? You gone all nihilist while I wasn't looking?
DIO: YOU'RE SO OBVIOUSLY DODGING THE QUESTION
- Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Other than Jonathan and Diavolo, Viva just uses her natural Australian accent on all the characters regardless of nationality or sometimes deliberately give them the wrong accent.
- Obviously Evil: Cioccolata's sociopathy is cranked up to 11 in "Golden Wind", proclaiming that his morality is "in the hard negatives" and that he is so evil, he likes stepping on LEGO pieces.
- Off the Rails: In "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure But Really Really REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY FAST", Jonathan being slower than the rest of the cast derails the entire story; he can't perform an Instant Costume Change so he goes off to change, which means he's absent for the dio confrontation, then he comes back during the following segments and Joseph becomes too busy escorting him off to look the right ages for Stardust Crusaders or Diamond is Unbreakable...
- Only Sane Man: Jotaro during "Diamond is Unbreakable", as he has to deal with Josuke, Koichi, and Okuyasu all the time.
- Orphaned Punchline: The Synchronization gag in "Diamond is Unbreakable" makes less sense in "Thursday July 15th But Slightly Slower," which splits the events of the titular day up for easy watching.
- Piano Drop: After being on the receiving end of Giorno's 7-page Muda, Cioccolata gets flung towards a garbage truck and is crushed by a piano. And then another piano. And then several piano keys, all of them playing an off-key version of Giorno's "Il Vento d'Oro" theme song. Later, Diavolo also gets crushed by a piano, along with several cars.
- Pokémon Speak: Yoma's speech in "Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan" gradually devolves into this, combined with Smurfing for the translations. An excerpt (translations are provided in parentheses):MuUUuSCLES (CHALLENGE ACCEPTED)
CARDIO SQUATS, GYM EXERCISE BALL (WE PLAY THE MUSCLE GAME LOSER LOSES THEIR MUSCLE MUSCLES MUSCLE MUSCLE)
SINGULAR PUSH UP (YOU MUSCLE PLAY THE MUSCLE GAME, YOU MUSCLE BET YOUR MUSCLE MUSCLE ON IT)
- Precision F-Strike: Jotaro utters one in "Stardust Crusaders" after Steely Dan reveals his Stand's trap, and then another when DIO hitchhikes a car to get to Joseph's body and absorb his blood.
- In "Diamond Is Unbreakable" Hayato also gives one to the person calling the house on the third time loop we see.
- After Narancia gets shrunk by Formaggio, he pops out from inside his shoe and exclaims, "Naran-shoe!"
- Metallica's Stand description (for a Stand that can manipulate metal, especially from someone's body) is, "Metal?!? Ick, aahhhh!"
- Rapid-Fire Comedy: The whole series is built on this. Viewers will get a lot of Replay Value out of going back to catch what they missed the first time (or even the second or third).
- Real Time: Unlike in the original anime, DIO's time stops happen in real seconds (up to 5 seconds before he's empowered by Joseph's blood, and then up to 9 seconds afterward). Averted with Jotaro's own time stop at the very end of "Diamond Is Unbreakable", which goes for longer than 2 seconds (Jotaro's time stop limit in canon) to fit in one final "ECNALUBMA" joke.
- The Reveal: In the April Fools 2021 video, various characters are interacting with the creator of the show offscreen when the video pans out and it's reveal they are talking to a gigantic black-and-white Title Card. This means The Narrator of the Really, Really Fast universe and Viva are one and the same.
- Red Herring: In the "Stardust Crusaders" video. With hints such as DIO having a "date at 10 o'clock", his chanting of the phrase "rhinoceros beetle", and Joseph claiming that DIO is finally dead, you would expect a Tempting Fate ending making a Gilligan Cut towards the events leading up to Stone Ocean. Further emphasized by the fact that the first two JoJo videos end with the same sort of Flash Forward, and yet it never happens here.
- Refuge in Audacity: In "Giorno Eats King Crimson", Giorno tries to deny that he ate King Crimson despite everyone in the room he was in seeing it happen for themselves. It doesn't work.
- RPG Mechanics 'Verse: A very minor example, but in the "Battle Tendency" video, when Joseph and Lisa Lisa try to manipulate the Column Fellows, they're told to "roll for [charisma/deception]", and when the die comes up a natural 20 both times, the Column Fellows are forced to reluctantly concede. Happens again when Old Joseph 'plays the drink game' with D'Arby, though this time the natural 20 isn't good enough.note
- Running Gag:
- In general, there are several cases where dramatic tension is abridged by having a character come to a conclusion, then in the very next sentence (if not the same breath) backpedal with a "no" and then immediately backpedal yet again with a "yes."
- A few from the "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" videos:
- "At least dio's dead now. Definitely." "It turned out that dio was not actually dead."
- "Roll for [charisma/deception/etc]." "Twenty!"
- "Look out, it's (noun) guy!"
- The descriptions for several Stand abilities in a row are simply "Morph dirt" (Judgement), "Morph mineral" (High Priestess), and "Morph sand... Car" (The Fool). After Geb breaks the pattern, there's "Morph faaaace" (Khnum), and Earth Wind and Fire's description from "Diamond is Unbreakable" is "Morph- wait, he's a what? Okay... Hold on-"
- Saying "The enemy!" when encountering an enemy, first done in Stardust Crusaders by Polnareff to Hol Horse, then carried over to Narancia in Golden Wind when he encounters Formaggio, followed by Narancia, Mista, and Abbachio saying it to the completely innocent man they beat up before fighting Squalo and Tiziano. Finally brought back with "Irrelevant"note at the moment Bucciarati utters the words.
- A character saying "Get my good side!" when getting their picture taken. When Rohan discovers Cheap Trick, Masazo's reaction is "NO! THAT'S MY BAD SIDE!"
- "Morioh Cho Radio" appears randomly in "Diamond is Unbreakable" during ominous or dramatic moments.
- Asking to be a main character. Played in minor with Kakyoin and Polnareff in "Stardust Crusaders", but almost every Stand user who's done a Heel–Face Turn in "Diamond is Unbreakable" asks to be a main character. By the point Jotaro announces the pursuit of Kira, he is shocked to find an entire group of over ten self-proclaimed main characters, including Joseph, Yukako, Tonio, Koichi, Okuyasu, Mr. Nijimura (the 'goopy father'), Josuke, Rohan, Hazamada, and Aya Tsuji. Note that less than half of these are actually main characters from the source material, and Josuke explicitly rejected Hazamada's offer to become a main character on the basis that he was "this close to actual murder."
- Any scene with a plane crashing will use the exact same clip of a plane crashing into the desert first seen in "Battle Tendency", edited if necessary. In "Stardust Crusaders", Iggy's The Fool flopping into the ground invokes the scene. In "Golden Wind", Aerosmith's Stand description is the unedited clip and the Notorious B.I.G scene goes over the desert instead of the ocean.
- Any Stand whose power involves guns or bullets is described simply with "GUN", first seen with Hol Horse's Emperor. Bad Company's Stand description (being a tiny army of soldiers) is the word "GUN" repeated over and over. Sex Pistols' Stand description is "When a mommy GUN and a daddy GUN love each other very much..."
- Anytime anybody refers to Giorno's ambitions to become the leader of Passione, they specifically refer to him as becoming a #hashtagGangstar.
- "[X] is Trish." Trish is Trish, of course, then Narancia is Trish (riffing off the memetic scene in the source material), then Mista is Trish, and then Diavolo is Trish (both of which occur after a "Freaky Friday" Flip).
- Lampshading Stands that don't quite follow the normal rules with some variation of "except for when it doesn't".
- In "Squid Game", characters preface the name of the game they're about to play as a "classic Korean kids' game". Additionally, tug of war is always called "tug of war from Mario Party specifically".
- Rule of Three: A minor Running Gag in "Diamond is Unbreakable" is Kira's proclamation of "Another day, another concerningly narrow escape", after barely avoiding getting exposed. The third time he says it, Kira remembers mid-proclamation that this time he didn’t escape.
- Same Character, But Different: In the "Five Nights at Freddy's" videos, Blue Version Mike acts like a normal yet paranoid person on the job, since Phone Guy gives him specific yet vague information and doesn't give him reliable information on the robot's attacking patterns, plus, he is afraid of being killed by the fuzzy animal robots he is watching over his shift. Red Version Mike, on the other hand, acts like a hardened FNAF Veteran, ignoring and muting Phone Guy's calls due to him acting like the tragedies that happened here are "Common Knowledge at this point" and isn't really scared of the scary robot animals since he recognized their attacking patterns and facing Freddy's potential jumpscare without fear, if he'd been lucky enough to survive til Six A. M. and winning the week and rubbing it in Freddy's face.
- Seinfeldian Conversation: With Prosciutto's Stand forcing everybody into old age, they also really want to play backgammon as well. This evolves into every conversation about backgammon becoming this. Heck, even Prosciutto himself states that backgammon is underrated.
- Sequel Escalation: "Phantom Blood" is 3.5 minutes long. "Battle Tendency" is almost double that at just over 6 minutes. "Stardust Crusaders" is double that at 12 minutes. "Diamond is Unbreakable" is only a few seconds longer than the previous video, clocking at 13.5 minutes. "Golden Wind" breaks 20 minutes. Helps explain why the time between the first and second videos was about 1 month, the time between the second and third was 6.5 months, and the time between the third and fourth was 9 months.
- Shaped Like Itself: The narrator describes Leone Abbachio's Moody Blues as... "Leone Abbachio's Moody Blues". Indicating how the stand can repeat and playback past events like a VCR.
- Shout-Out: Has its very own page.
- Shown Their Work: In "Five Nights at Freddy's - RED VERSION", both the video and Mike know the FNAF franchise all inside out, like the timeline, mechanics, popular theories, and the exact AI levels of the animatronics for each night.
- Silence, You Fool!: The Front Man in "Squid Game" shouts at the contestants to be quiet, insists they all understand why they're at the games, and displays people stating themselves to be in "comical amount[s] of debt".
- Simultaneous Arcs: A split-screen is used to show the events of one Thursday in "Diamond is Unbreakable", with characters and narration talking over each other as they deal with various problems, Stands, and fish research. Emphasis on "simultaneous" here due to the situations aligning exactly as follows:Terunosuke & Rohan & Jotaro: *each doing their own thing—* Ruminating.
- Stop Hitting Yourself: The verbatim Stand description of Ghiaccio's White Album Gently Weeps, referring to the fact that it can redirect Mista's attacks back at him.
- Strange Minds Think Alike: Once Jotaro’s group reunites after dealing with Mariah and Alessi:Jotaro, Polnareff, Joseph, Avdol: You wouldn’t believe what we just had to deal with!
Polnareff, Joseph, Avdol: It was weirdly sexual!
- During the course of June 15th in Diamond is Unbreakable, the three team "leaders" of Yuya, Rohan and Jotaro have very different and variably drastic situations going on for themselves, and all three of them stop to ponder their situation at exactly the same time, in exactly the same pose, with the exact same declaration of "Ruminating..."
- Stuff Blowing Up: Commonly used to show someone being utterly trounced. Unless Yoshikage Kira is involved, in which case the explosions are quite literal.
- Stylistic Self-Parody: All the characters in the series are drawn without any arms or legs, and hands are only depicted when they need to be. This gets made fun of in the "Golden Wind" episode: after Giorno gets attacked by Notorious B.I.G, Bucciarati brings him to Abbacchio and points out that he has lost both of his arms; Abbacchio replies by stating he can clearly see it and Bucciarati doesn't need to specify that.
- Synchronization: Yuya, Rohan and Jotaro in "Diamond is Unbreakable" on July 15 all say "Ruminating" at the exact same time at about 1:50 PM, Yuya thinking of how to confront Enigma, Rohan thinking of what to do about Cheap Trick and Jotaro thinking of what to write his report on.
- Take That!:
- During the Germans' introductions in "Battle Tendency", every time someone is about to say "Nazi", the video pauses, the speaker's face is replaced by the demonetization symbol, and the narrator chimes in with "German soldiers". She uses that phrase with utter boredom to mock that website's sensitive demonetization system and/or the official English dub's censorship.
- Also pauses in Golden Wind when Melone was about to say "rape" (only this time, the voice screams "Consent was not involved!")
- In "Stardust Crusaders", on Horus' Eye Catch, the description is "Under Pressure but bad".
- To finish off "Stardust Crusaders", the "To Be Continued" arrow appears while the narrator badly sings "Walk Like an Egyptian". As she tries to justify that the show stopped using "Roundabout" as the ending song, another arrow appears with the first note of that song playing. This shows how that song is essentially synonymous with the franchise, and how no other tune can compete against that.
- After taking silent potshots at Poco, Smokey and Anne for having no plot significance in their parts by not including them in these videos, "Diamond is Unbreakable" finally features them in the same scene... set in a place called "Child Protagonist Purgatory".
- "Five Nights at Freddy's - BLUE VERSION" halts abruptly in the middle of the video to present a parody of MatPat from Game Theory badly explaining the game's lore.Not MatPat: ...But hey! That's just a guess!!
- During the Germans' introductions in "Battle Tendency", every time someone is about to say "Nazi", the video pauses, the speaker's face is replaced by the demonetization symbol, and the narrator chimes in with "German soldiers". She uses that phrase with utter boredom to mock that website's sensitive demonetization system and/or the official English dub's censorship.
- Talking Is a Free Action: Joseph Joestar is able to pull off his "The next thing you will say is..." gag involving a paragraph of run-on sentences without being interrupted by the enemy.
- Tempting Fate: Many characters do this by saying things are going well or hoping not to encounter something, usually just before they're contradicted.
- Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Women tend to have noticeable boobs in their silhouette.
- That Came Out Wrong: Jotaro spends the entirety of "Stardust Crusaders" practicing his well-known retort to DIO, "Can't beat the shit out of you without getting closer," but keeps messing it up. When the scene in question arrives, Jotaro says, "I have to get closer before I can shit on you— ahh, dammit!"
- The Tape Knew You'd Say That: As Giorno explains King Crimson, Rohan, Koichi and Polnareff keep interrupting his monologue to ask about seemingly arbitrary limitations in King Crimson's abilities. Giorno says he didn't intend on any of these questions being asked, but the slideshow conveniently has slides that match the arguments that both Giorno and the audience bring forward.
- This Cannot Be!: This happens in "Battle Tendency" during Stroheim's battle against Column Fellow #3.Stroheim: You cannot beat me, I have super gun bullets that definitely cannot be deflected or cut with your sword arm!
[Column Fellow #3 cuts the bullets with his sword arm.]
Stroheim: HOW CAN YOU CUT MY BULLETS WITH YOUR SWORD ARM?!
- This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: Jotaro survives DIO's barrage and stops time himself, shouting "Surprise, BITCH!" before he finishes DIO off for good.
- Thought They Knew Already: When Koichi reports to Jotaro about Giorno, Jotaro tells him that Giorno is DIO's son. Koichi is confused, then Jotaro says he thought Koichi already knew.
- Time Stands Still: Rohan accuses the writers of Golden Wind as conflating King Crimson's time skip with The World's time stop, since Diavolo inexplicably does things during the skipped time that seem more as if he outright stopped time, as opposed to skipping ten seconds ahead. Giorno instead argues that Diavolo's own fate is still a factor and that the results of his own fate do still apply regardless of what Diavolo does, even if he skips time.
- Trauma Conga Line: Pretty much all of Hayato's screentime is him being put through horribly traumatizing situation after horribly traumatizing situation.
- Unexplained Accent: A Running Gag for the "Jojo's Bizarre Adventures But Really Really Fast" series is for characters to inflect British Isles accents they logically shouldn't have in the first place. So far, Kakyoin and Koichi are British, Avdol is Scottish, and Fugo is Irishnote despite being Japanese, Egyptian and Italian respectively. The rest of the time Viva doesn't bother and speaks in her natural Australian accent with the only correct ones being Jonathan (British) and Diavolo (Italian).
- Unreadably Fast Text: The info cards for both Avdol and DIO in Stardust Crusaders, Rohan in Diamond Is Unbreakable and Diavolo in Golden Wind when explaining their Stand's special abilities, although Diavolo's applies mainly because he skipped through it.
- Unsound Effect: In "Golden Wind", when Giorno grows a tree to puncture Cioccolata's helicopter from below, the sound effect is Viva quietly saying "tree".
- Verbal Backspace: Mista, afflicted by Prosciutto's age-accelerating The Grateful Dead, confronts the two by saying, "You've just messed with the wrong retirement home- GANG, gang, I meant gang!!"
- Later in the same video, during a flashback:Florist: Bucciarati!! Please exact revenge on my daughter's murderer!
Bucciarati: We're not assassins.
[Florist dumps a Stock Money Bag on the ground]
Bucciarati: ...Alright, we're conditional assassins.
- Later in the same video, during a flashback:
- Visual Pun: Not wanting Koichi to continue calling him, Jotaro claims he is breaking up before snapping the phone in half.
- Vocal Evolution:
- Jonathan gained a proper British accent in his next appearance and is a lot peppier and polite sounding.
- Fugo was vaguely Irish in "Golden Wind" but became full-blown Irish if the "Purple Haze Feedback" teaser is anything to go by.
- Watsonian versus Doylist: In "Giorno Explains King Crimson," Rohan keeps bringing up questions with reasonable answers for the audience and writers and asks Giorno to give an explanation as to how it works in-universe. Eventually, he outright explains how Rule of Cool might have dictated the elevator scene, saying it would be an effective scene to have the hero's companion suddenly stolen away from them without any explanation without much regard for if it matches later definitions of King Crimson's abilities. He also directly brings up how the writers may have conflated King Crimson's time skip with The World's time stop. Justified as he is a mangaka, and often assumed to be an Author Avatar for Araki himself.
- You Can't Fight Fate: This is addressed in "Giorno Explains King Crimson," as Polnareff asks how Diavolo needs to skip time in order to defy Epitaph's vision. Giorno explains that fate is entirely impossible to change outside of certain Stand abilities, such as King Crimson's time skip, and that Diavolo couldn't choose to simply ignore Epitaph's vision by just doing something different unless he skipped time. He also brings up the idea that, even when Diavolo skips time, his own original fate still exists, the results of said fate still taking effect, such as him moving his evidence out of his hotel room or stabbing Giorno's body through a gate in the colosseum.
I have defeated Tropes Guy!
